No more cramming keywords into your web pages! Today’s search algorithms are far too complex to manipulate through keyword stuffing. Instead, search engines, like Google, are looking for thought-leaders with very specific and helpful content that aligns with your customer’s search intent.
“EAT” your Way to the Top for Better Visibility Online
Google search core updates, ranking changes, and algorithm updates shed light on how you should align your content creation practices to grow your business online. Pay attention, particularly to the EAT principle: Expertise, Authoritativeness, and Trustworthiness. These factors help determine if a web page has useful quality content. This principle is especially relevant in business niches like industrial tools, safety, industrial automation, and medical supply.
You’ll be amazed to know that AI-generated content is against Google’s Webmaster Guidelines. Ultimately, it all boils down to user intent and user experience signals. These signals include traffic on your webpage, time spent on browsing content, and the type of interaction. Instead of trying to reach “some” word count, create content that intrigues the readers, source authentic product images, and bring on expert speakers in your niche to engage with your target audience.
Establish and differentiate products and services through Product Data Enrichment, Product Taxonomy Service, and Product Attribute Development. Adopt PIM & MDM to deliver consistent, transparent, and knowledgeable product messaging across multiple customer touchpoints.
